Charlyne Cares is a daily reminder that God cares and that we care about your marriage. Each morning Charlyne sends a devotional and Bob does a Prodigal Perspective on Tuesdays. These come from someone who has experienced the tragedy of divorce and the triumph of a family restored by God speaking to Charlyne's heart not to give up on their marriage after she divorced Bob.
Shout with joy to God, all the earth! Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious! Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you. All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.” Selah Psalm 66:1-4
As you go and worship your Lord today, prepare your heart to shout with joy and thanksgiving. Will you make His praise to be glorious as you sing the hymns or worship songs? Will you worship your Lord God who has created the Heavens and the earth? God has created you, your spouse and your children to worship His greatness. That may seem hard to do at this moment, but He will bless you as you choose to praise God in the midst of the darkest days of your life.
God sent His only Son, Jesus to die on the cross for every sinner. What amazing unconditional love! Let us pray that all believers will want to be in church as least once a week praising the Lord, as they hunger and thirst to hear God’s chosen man of God preach God’s Word to His sheep this Lord’s Day.
I pray that you have started or will start today in taking your children to church every week. Get them involved in a good children’s Bible study class. Get your teen involved in an excellent youth group that often meets on Wednesdays or another evening. We need to teach our children at home about the Lord by having a daily time in the morning or in the evening with a devotional and prayer. You can do it near bedtime if that is better for everyone. Pray that you will find the right youth pastors or lay leaders who will become spiritual mentors, who have a genuine burden for your family and all youth so that they will grow spiritually in the Lord.
As you praise the Lord this Sunday, thank Him in advance for how He is speaking to your beloved husband or wife or child/children of any age right now and removing your mountain of marriage problems.
Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds-- his name is the LORD-- and rejoice before him. A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. Psalm 68:5-6
As you go to church, examine your own heart to see if you are stuffing down sins of anger, bitterness, jealousy or unforgiveness against your husband or wife, or the other person if there is one. Do you need to forgive your in-laws or your own family because of the words they are saying to you? Right now, repent and ask the Lord to remove any sin and cleanse you from all unrighteousness and ask the Lord to give you the Spirit of forgiveness and God's love, mercy and grace.
Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened; but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me! Psalm 66:16-20
Draw near to God today, praising Him, and start praying and telling the Lord all that is on your heart. Cry out to the Lord for your spouse’s salvation and deliverance. Ask the Holy Spirit to open your beloved spouse's eyes and ears to see and hear God's truth to set them free from the bondages of sins in their life. Your Lord God knows your every need. Ask the Lord to make you into the woman or man of God, becoming more Christ-like each day, and make you into the wife or husband that you need to be for your spouse and the parent that your children need. Nothing is too hard for your Lord God to do. Just keep praising and shout with joy, how great Thou art!
Lord, this dear stander is seeking to do Your perfect will, but you know the rejection, abandonment, the adultery or anger or other sins that have caused destruction to this marriage. Lord, may this stander never forget that the enemy has tempted and tricked one or both of them. Lord, touch and heal both their wounded and broken hearts today. Lord, pour on them Your perfect peace that is beyond understanding. May they feel Your amazing unconditional love that You have for them and their family. Lord, increase their faith in You and remove all the fear, doubt and unbelief that keeps stealing their peace and joy. Help them to walk in faith and believe that they can say to any mountain of circumstance to be gone and be removed in the Name of Jesus. As nothing is too hard for God. Lord, may you meet all this stander’s and family’s needs. Bless them abundantly. In Jesus' Name I pray. Amen.

"God is answering my prayers. My husband is back home and now my children can have the joy of having mom and dad together. Thank you Jesus." (California)
“This is for anyone who is waiting for their marriage to be restored. I’ve been praying for several years for my marriage to be restored. God kept me close with Him during the time of waiting. Early last month I went to church with my ex-husband. The preacher called me up in front of church and said what you have been praying for is coming true, just hold on to God. I praised God’s Holy Name and thanked Him. My ex-husband had no clue at the time and wanted to know what I had been told. I told him I could not tell him, I had to wait on God. Last week my husband asked me to marry him! This is a miracle from God. It’s been hard, wanting to give up, not sure if God was listening, friends trying to tell me to move forward with my life. But I said, God Your will for my life. So please do not give up. Hold on to God’s Words and His plans for your life. Thank You Father for Your love and understanding Your plan for my life.” (North Carolina)
